I bought this product based on the great reviews and to be honest when it's working, it is great. You don't have to worry about cutting through cables and it seems to tackle most bushes. However, the batteries are a pain! One out of the two is already broken and doesn't hold its power, even after a long charge. The second works fine just as long as it's used straight after charging. If you charge the battery then leave it for a few weeks, it is dead!

Every time I've wanted to use the trimmer, the batteries are absolutely useless. It also takes a while for them to charge. I've looked at replacing the batteries, but they are over 40 a pop!

I am now contemplating going back to a corded unit or maybe petrol.

I was orignally looking at the Freeloader, but after reading the poor reviews, I decided to pay the extra for the Power Monkey.

It's great...I can charge my mobile phones, Tomtom 720, Ipod and various other things. There are lots of different connectors.

It is delivered with at least 60% of its power, so it is up to you to top it up. 6 hours on the solar slave will charge it by a third, allowing enough power to fully charge a mobile phone. 3.5 hours to fully charge it by the mains. 6 hours to fully charge via USB.

On the solar charger it has a green light to indicate that it is recieving light. The main unit has an light also; red when it is charging, green when it is fully charged. However, this does depend on the charging source. If it is a dull day and the solar slave isn't picking up too much light, it will only charge the unit most of the way...but the light on the main unit will turn green, making you think it is fully charged. However, if later in the day the sun appears, the light will turn red and the unit will continue to charge to full power. This isn't a major issue because the main screen will indicate whether the unit is fully charged or not.

Overall, an excellent product.
